Sanskrit, meaning ‘perfected’ or ‘refined’, is one of the oldest human language. The term ‘Sanskrit’ is derived from the conjoining of the prefix ‘Sam’ meaning ‘samyak’ which indicates ‘entirely’ and ‘krit’ that indicates ‘done’. Thus, the name indicates perfectly or entirely done in terms of communication, reading, hearing, and the use of vocabulary to transcend and express an emotion. Sanskrit is the store house of ancient Indian cultural and literary heritage and also known for its multi-disciplined approach among all the spheres of knowledge and Known as the mother of all Indian languages. The Sanskrit language not only speaks about Vedas and Puraṇas, but also extends its existence in scientific spheres viz. mathematics, astronomy, astrology, physics, medicine, yoga etc. Sanskrit is among the 22 official languages of India in the Eighth Schedule to the Constitution. In 2010, Uttarakhand became the first state in India to make Sanskrit its second official language. In 2019, Himachal Pradesh made Sanskrit its second official language, becoming the second state in India to do so.
